This is the stage of the process when most clients hire their Social Security lawyers, as people who hire lawyers win their appeals more often than those who choose to represent themselves. Mrs. Lake has personally handled thousands of appeals over her 23 years practicing Social Security law in Arizona, and our office will be able to design the appropriate strategy for your case.

Please call our office and you will get help figuring out how to proceed so that you have a compelling case ready at your hearing.
